Summary:

Jared Butler is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is having a solid sophomore season, and he could project to be a microwave type of scorer in the NBA.  He will need to improve his playmaking skills and show that he can effectively run the point at the next level, but right now, he may project to be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.
